This was scanned from an original copy at 600 dpi RGB as PNG images. To make a version compact enough to handle online, it was reduced to 300dpi JPEG images; these were concatenated and wrapped into the large PDF file available here.
This is not a beautiful or highly polished scan; it is quite rough. But at the time of scanning this volume of Holtzapffel was not available online elsewhere.
